The fact that iTAC has been a public cloud MES pioneer and smart factory solution leader since 2011 played an important role in the selection decision.
The award-winning iTAC.IoT.Platform is a vertical public cloud IoT platform for small and medium-sized enterprises. It is based on infrastructure components (IaaS) from leading horizontal IoT platforms such as MS Azure, IBM Bluemix, AWS etc. The middleware components for the iTAC.IoT.Platform are based on the Java EE iTAC.AppServer and the Container Framework Docker (PaaS).
